Comedian and late night television show host Jay Leno will bring his act on Sept. 19 to the Rivers Casino Pittsburgh’s Event Center this fall.

The award winning funnyman and late night television host has earned the highest consecutive ratings, two Emmy Awards, a TV Guide Award, an induction into the Television Academy’s Broadcast Hall of Fame, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“Jay Leno is a legendary comedian and a timeless performer,” said Shannon Redmond, vice president of marketing at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh in a statement. “We’re honored to welcome him to The Event Center stage.”

Before establishing his own late night show, Leno was an exclusive guest on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” since 1987; he also made frequent appearances on “Late Night with David Letterman.”

He is also host and executive producer of CNBC’s “Jay Leno’s Garage,” and former host of “The Tonight Show.”

Tickets for the Sept. 19 show start at $49 and can be purchased in the Rivers Casino Gift Shop or at RiversCasino.com.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
